through these difficult times. when the company urged -- merge with u.s. airways in 2005, parker took a new set of challenges on as the ceo of the newly restructured legacy alive. u.s. airways is a company built on mergers and acquisitions, which is a fitting for dug parker, the industry's main advocate for consolidation. he has argued time and again the airlines can be more flexible, more capable, and more valuable to travelers if they join forces . the airlines that did so are now operating successfully. mr. parker believes the combining u.s. airways and american airlines would create a more competitive industry and a more sustainable airline. so far his plan has received widespread support, including and, perhaps, surprisingly from the workers and american airlines and the union. he is here today to tell us more about the merger and where it sits and to his broader vision for the industry as a whole. ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming dug parker to the national press club. [applause] >> thank you. thank you, all of you, it was very nice. i will say to my not a good p

bragging that he could do it, but it was also a warning to us. what if the next time that happens it's a larger utility or a group of smaller utilities around the country, maybe water, maybe electricity, maybe gas, and this time they're not just warning us or showing us our vulnerability but they're actually going to disrupt the flow of electricity or water to people who depend on it. that's -- that's the kind of crisis that we face and why it is so urgent that we deal with this. so let me come back to my dream. my goal here is that as we go on this week, we're able to submit a manager's amendment, but it's not just from the managers, senators collins, rockefeller, feinstein and i. we're joined by a much broader group and we form a broad bipartisan consensus here to protect our country from a terrible danger that is real, urgent and growing. mr. president, i always like to -- i was thinking about it again in this case -- think back in these moments. since i don't see anybody else on the floor, i will undulling myself and go back to a hot july day in philadelphia -- indulge myself and
to make sure that we are using for example the small business review process to ensure that the rules ask crafted can ease compliance where necessary especially with respect to smaller firms. smaller firms be they depositories jarmon depositories are by their nature less able to easily shoulder significant compliance costs tend to be more fixed than variable which means to the extent it firm is smaller on the compliance board and would be more biting and constraining and so the basic to make sure we are attentive as applied to the various regulatory requirements. >> which is one of my concerns. i keep getting that feedback from our small banks and credit unions about the compliance costs with the new rules coming out. within this efp, those are dillinger of disclosure issues as well as other disclosure forms. are you all communicating so when qr m comes out we are not going to have different ways of compliance issues for the small banking institutions? are you all talking together so it's going to be very fluid and we and are not going to have one rule come out but would then be modified
to find a discriminator that exists or existed within the usda. i think it's incumbent upon us to find equal protection for americans and if people are being discriminated against, we should fix that. and i don't know that it exists to the extent that it has been alleged by injury concerned about the political movement in this country that the fear on the part of republicans to make any comment that has to do with some sensitive issue and to go along with programs that may or may not have merit. but i would like to see the equal protection part and i look around this room and i think there's an opportunity to come to the congress and i think there's an opportunity to get involved in farming. i look around my neighbors and where was the special program for the swedes or irish that's just been about 15 miles of me. if they didn't -- to get started farming and guess it was hard. if you can show me people are being discriminated against want to help you fix that but i don't think on the other side we get where we need to go as a nation if we set up special projects for people that are defi
like the filter bubbles a wonderful issue increasingly facebook doesn't ask us to say something important because they want us to like it so they can give us more stuff that we like and they will show that first. that does not -- we may have friends are black and hispanic but we tend to orient toward those that have the same world view that we do. we do much more of that. and so, i think one of the most dangerous trends in the united states over the long term is that we are deepening the segmentation of the orientations that we have in our political and social preferences and clearly our politics in washington reflect that. i don't know how. it's an interesting observation. but absolutely the diversification of the ethnic composition in the united states as a mitigating factor. >> welcome this is really been an interesting conversation and i feel very lucky to have had a chance to talk with you and all the other knowledgeable people here. i don't have a copy of the real cover of the book right here, but every nation for itself i believe there are books in the back. by a book, as
for the last three and a half years despite repeated appeals, bipartisan appeals urging them to work with us to help solve the judicial vacancy crisis. i have been here in the time of president ford, president carter, president reagan, president george h.w. bush, president clinton, president george w. bush. none of these presidents were treated like this, none of them were by either republicans or democrats. somehow this president is considered different. we have seen everyone from chief justice john roberts who was appointed by a republican president to the nonpartisan american bar association urging the senate to vote on qualified judicial nominees. they are able to administer justice for the american public. sadly, republicans insist on being the party of no. but the american people and the overburdened federal courts need qualified justices to administer justice in our federal courts, not the perpetuation of extended numerous vacancies. we extend the number of vacancies even as the population of this country increases. today, vacancies on the federal courts are more than two and a half t
] - max rodriguez founder of the harlem book fair. this is our 14th year. thank you so much for joining us. our theme this year is enlightenment through literacy and with that simply means is that as we get access to information, we can use that information to increase, to enhance the quality of our lives. our family lives, our children's lives and the lives of our communities. the life of america frankly because don't we contribute every day in the things that we do and in this basis that we hold and the work that we hold and the families that we take care of? access to information is critical especially now the digital technology just sort of changing everything, how we access to information. i have a story about how books have always been the means by which information is delivered and now that means by which is being changed has shifted to digital so it causes and then packed in the book world and we know that it does and it has what what remains important is having access to that information knowing what questions to ask and knowing where to go to get the answer that we need to contin

of the esteem of history. my question i wanted to pursue in the op-ed he use was how realistic is this? so i looked at history's judgment and as you heard, history's judgment is generally can tittered to be the judgment of the historians in the polls of the academics that we begin with arthur schlesinger junior's senior in 1948 in the pc did after a poll he took in life magazine insert a great deal of interest, showing the american people have a real fascination and affection really for their president the massive body of literature that's grown up as a result of those polls over time. so there's a generally recognized consensus on the part of historians and plenty of room for discussion about where so-and-so belongs, john adams, for example for grover cleveland. i'll talk about both momentarily but then the contemporaneous outlet draped. well, 82 term president is obviously receives higher esteem on part of the electorate than a one term president. a two-term president succeeded by his own party, meaning that he had two terms that were judged by the voters to be worthy of detention on part

. this is something we have to do to make sure there isn't an attack against us and especially during an election year. i think it comes with this idea that there still is a military solution and let's recognize that a lot of people in this administration came from the last administration. there isn't that much of a transformation from the bush administration to the obama administration when it comes to the military and when it comes to the cia. in fact there's just been a little rearranging of the titles. so it's the same mindset and some of the same exact people and it's a reflection of an inability to have a military solution in afghanistan even with boots on the ground. some people say that this administration's way of dealing with the war is a whack-a-mole policies, they whack them in afghanistan and then they go to yemen and whack them there and now they are talking about having drones in africa. i think what is implied in your question is an somebody going to stop at some point and say this doesn't make any sense? on the other hand it keeps the military complex going and as long as americans co
